The map and list depict the traditional historic counties Scotland,
and their highest points above sea level. These are the counties from which people generally
take their local cultural identity.
Please note that I have found no other reference to the historic county tops of Scotland, so this
list is uncorroborated and from my own study of old OS maps.
Though the traditional historic counties and their boundaries still exist, local government administrative
changes have been largely adopted by map-makers and in road-signage, giving us new administrative
"counties". The notable changes were:
the metropolitan "counties" and other oddities in 1975, e.g. Central, Strathclyde,
Highland, Grampian; the changeover to Unitary Authorities in 1996.
All these changes to administrative areas make the historic County Tops a more satisfactory list
for bagging, as they are unchangeable. However, this website does include pages for the
Administrative (1975) County Tops, and for the current
County and Unitary Authority Tops.
